ELMO aims to deepen and organize the existing research on lifestyle, health, and disease. The focus lies on questions such as:
- What happens in our bodies if we do not exercise (inactivity studies)? What happens if we do exercise? What endocrinological, immunological and metabolic consequences do this have?
- What effects does nutrition have on our health? Which diet is best?
- What are the effects of psychological stress? By which physical responses does it lead to diseases.
Also, ELMO is strongly focused on the development and improvement of new lifestyle interventions, as well as on supporting existing programs that have been proven to work.
